"We all know what the final solution is going to be."

Nice slip of the tounge.

I actually am very much in agreement with everything your guest has said - he'd just better watch out now as accusations of anti-Semitism start raining down on him.

How short is this fellow's knowledge of history? According to his thesis, Chamberlain did a wonderful thing building a better relationship between England and Germany.

What is his scientific method by which he concludes that Iran has the only pro American population in the Middle East? Has he ever been to Israel. Although its government often disagrees with the US, the Israeli population is very pro US. Who are the people who demonstrated and who beat the protestors in Iran. Did he speak to any of those people in Iran?
